The Model Cell

There exists a wealth of data about the properties and processes of cells, but a comprehensive model of the cellModel Cell has yet to be built.

The ISO is bringing together a wide range of experts, from medical scientists to econo-physicists, to address the challenge of building the first realistic computer model of a human cell. The model will be based on experimental evidence of cell functions combined to provide a dynamic model that is constantly upgraded as new data emerges.
